Read me files open in Command Prompt

  Charlie Brown 02:00 01 Jul 2004

I have noticed recently that read me files in explorer are opening in command prompt with an empty black box. I cannot understand how this has happened or how to correct it. Previously, when I double clicked on the files they opened as text. I did have problems with some trojans and homepage hijacking, but that has now been sorted out. Any help would be appreciated.

Right click the file, open with, choose program..., find notepad in the list, check "always use the selected...".

Powerless, I should have explained my problem better. Actually, notepad opens in command prompt with an empty black box.
